Egypt Package Holidays


Despite its growing popularity as a package holiday destination, Egypt remains an exotic and romantic choice for UK holidaymakers. Egypt, with its dramatic scenery, is steeped in history from ancient times and yet is also a surprisingly modern country with excellent accommodation and tourist facilities. Add in its hot climate and fabulous beach resorts, and Egypt is a great choice for history buffs and sun lovers alike.

Things to do in Egypt

, known as the cradle of civilisation, boasts some of the finest historical sites in the world and is of course most famous for its Pyramids. No visit to Egypt would be complete without a visit to the magnificent Pyramids of Giza, burial grounds to Egypt’s ancient rulers. Located just 25km from its centre - and with its suburbs now stretching to within a stone’s throw of the site - the Pyramids are easily accessible from Egypt’s huge and fascinating Capital city Cairo.However, if history or the hustle and bustle of city life is not for you, you could also take a cruise down the Nile and experience the country in a different way. Egypt boasts some particularly unique and impressive countryside which is perhaps best seen by cruising. Alternatively, for those who simply want to relax, Egypt’s Red Sea resorts offer some of the finest beaches in the world.

Travelling to Egypt

In summer, temperatures on Egypt’s Red Sea coast, including the popular resorts of Sharm el Sheikh and Taba, reach as high as 43 Celsius or 109 Fahrenheit. Cairo and the interior are generally cooler with temperatures peaking in the low nineties Fahrenheit.Winter temperatures in Egypt remain pleasantly warm with maximum daytime temperatures still hitting 70 degrees. Egypt’s climate makes it a popular year round holiday destination, however, for those who don’t like it too hot and want to lower their package cost its best to avoid the summer peak.
